Weather summary for Alberta issued by Environment Canada at 4:39 p.m. MDT Tuesday 11 July 2017. Discussion. On the afternoon of July 10, 2017, a series of thunderstorms developed over the Alberta foothills. They tracked eastwards over southern Alberta before morphing into a large area of rain. By morning, the main rain area had moved off into Saskatchewan but a band remained from Medicine Hat northwestward through Red Deer and then northwestern Alberta. The following is a summary of weather event information received by Environment Canada. All times are in MDT. Tornado Reported just north of Calgary on July 10, 2017 Confirmed At approximately 8:20 pm MDT on July 10, 2017 a brief tornado was observed 13 km northwest of Calgary International Airport. The Prairie and Arctic Storm Prediction Centre has so far received no reports of damage; therefore, this tornado has been given a preliminary rating of EF0. This was considered a non-mesocyclonic tornado that was generated by weak rotation under a rapidly developing thunderstorm. These types of tornadoes do not usually cause significant damage but can still be dangerous as they can topple trees, damage roofs, or toss debris a short distance. PASPC meteorologists are actively seeking pictures of the tornado or damage it may have caused. Should you have any information regarding this event, or to report severe weather at any time, please call 1-800-239-0484, send an email to ec.storm.ec(at)canada.ca, or tweet to (hash)abstorm.
